to beat president obama. a look at the war in afghanistan. now the longest war. how do we get out? does obama's policy differ from president bush's and what is the effect for generations to come? joe and mika and willie join in the conversation later this hour. we begin with the debt crisis. they are trying to make a deal on the deficit. houses of congress are rolling out separate compromises to safe off a default. harry reid is meeting with mitch mcconnell to craft a solution to appeal to both parties. according to reports, this would do the following. it would allow the debt ceiling to be raised three times for a total of $2.5 trillion. in exchange, some $1.5 trillion in spending cuts would be enacted. the plan would be established to identify new deficit cuts. proposal, already, getting a lukewarm response from the fellow republicans. among them, the freshman snar mark arubio and tom coburn. take a listen. >> it gives the president the ability to raise the debt limit. the debt limit isn't the problem. the problem is the debt. the plan, as outlined to me isn't a credible solution. >>

on jobs in baghdad, kabul, kandahar, in other parts of the iraq and afghanistan. and the irony of course is that we are being told that we are in this terrible crisis, when the republicans brought out a military bill that increased the military by $17 billion, gives more money to iraq and afghanistan, and i have to say i am very nervous that the president might agree to keep troops in iraq next year, which is longer than george bush wanted to keep them there. so, yeah, i think we can in the short-term save a lot of money by bringing the troops home with no negative job impact. but to get back to your question, what mr. bernanke said correctly is, yes, over the long-term, you should have a plan for deficit reduction from both higher taxes in my judgment and spending cuts. but in the short-term, if you were to do that, you would slow down the recovery. and that's why it's a timing issue. >> in terms of what you just said there about defense cuts, and what might be possible in this congress, i feel like the things that i have heard from republicans that seem like they have sort of silver li
in afghanistan is down to a handful, perhaps two dozen or so. there are those in the presidential race who say, look, we can get out a lot quicker even than president obama thinks we can. is our mission done in afghanistan? >> no. no. >> why not? you have to folk ds sh. >> our mission is not done in -- our mission in afghanistan was not just to capture and bring bin laden to justice, although that was a big part of it, and i commend president bush and particularly president obama for having carried it out. i thought that was one of the high points of his presidency for which he will always get credit historically, whether he wins or loses re-election. it's a gutsy decision and the president carried it out 100%. but our mission in afghanistan is to basically end al qaeda and get the taliban under control so it doesn't go back to what it was in the past and to create a stability there so they don't threaten us in the future. so that doesn't become again the breeding ground for a tax on america the way it was in 2001. we're not there yet. afghanistan is a state of chaos and confusion, not in a st

afghanistan and iraq at the current levels of military spending and let's assume that we don't do that for the next decade, so we save ourselves magically a trillion dollars by assuming that we're not going to keep them at the current levels. well, no one seems we're going to keep them at the current levels, so that supposed trillion dollars of savings is completely phony, as is the half a trillion dollars in interest savings that would come about as a result of this. the iraq and afghan war spending is not built into the baseline of the budget, the $45.9 trillion worth of spending that the government is now forecast over the next decade, we're not building into that baseline afghanistan and iraq at the current levels, so the president has phony savings like that but the tax increases he keeps talking about, some of them, the public ones, are ridiculous. six times during his news conference, he talked about a $3 billion tax -- >> jon: uh-oh we lost our feed from karl there, he is based in austin, texas these days and for whatever reason, maybe we didn't pay the satellite bills, bu

are helping insurgents, enemies of the united states in afghanistan and effectively helping to kill americans and other nato forces there. what are they saying about that? >> well, wolf, it doesn't make sense when you look ate from an american perspective. when i was in pakistan earlier this year, pakistani officials are very concerned about two things. they feel a threat from india. they're worried about the indians having influence in afghanistan. there are some elements within pakistan that use these insurgents in afghanistan as sort of a check on india's power there. they don't like this idea of this rival india having influence on the other side of the border. the other thing they worry about is going into the tribal regions, by doing so they kick up a hornet's nest and then those people start to make attacks in places where people really care. you can liken to a very rural part in alaska, there would be a difference between something happening there and something happening in the heart of times square manhattan. that's sort of the pakistani perspective on that, wolf. >> a juror in the c

, that's clear, isn't it? so there he was, he was making his 15th trip to afghanistan and it was while he was over at camp leatherneck that the marines asked him, okay, if there are a bunch of pentagon cuts, how is that going to affect our equipment and stuff like that. and wherever he has gone so far during this particular swing through the country of afghanistan, the troops are saying are we going to get paid? and he's saying, i don't know. just know this whatever you are owed you'll get paid eventually. you know, and this is how this works down. if we do, talking about if we go into a debt ceiling where we can't pay our bills technically which i don't agree with anyway, let's say, the president has the tablt to decide who gets paid when. clearly the debt is going to get paid first. china and saudi arabia are paid before our military, as bad as that sounds, that has to happen, so our borrowing costs don't go through the roof and then pay the military and social security, and if you dodonn tt order, give the department of education money first, it's the president's fault. it's not congre

country, why? well, they've been active in afghanistan, had a deployment there for several years, active in the libyan air campaign, the cartoon issue. also, what we're finding in scandinavia is groups themselves are coming together from denmark, sweden, and norway, different ethnicities gathering and meeting in mosques, and they are adjacent -- they're local to norway, sweden, denmark. know where the targets are. and saying a man who lived in norway, head of a very radical sunni group from northern iraq who was prosecuted because he'd threatened norwegian ministers because he was going to be deported. he said, you deport me and i get killed in iraq, the same will happen to norwegian ministers. so they do have this fringe in scandinavian countries of islamist militants. >> when i have questions about terrorism here, i often come you and ask you, you know, who these people are, what's going on here. in terms of who might be behind this, who do you think? >> it could be a whole range of groups. but the point is that al qaeda is not so much an organization. it's more a spirit for these peop

, there's a pattern in that we have reached a tipping point. we saw it with afghanistan. and iraq in terms of the timetable. when are we getting out. we saw it in the compromises on the bush tax cuts. we have seen this pattern in which democrats are put in the position to having to be the adults in the conversation, and trying to hold things together, and now we are back at that point. if you look at that pattern of concession and then compromise to the middle, and the democrats having to bear the burden politically for those decisions, it might be a trial balloon, but there is a pattern that indicates that social security and medicare are on the table. and that is why we reacted the way we did. this shouldn't be on the table. we have reached a no mass point here. that democrats should never support this. we have to be solid and independent, regardless of what those negotiations with the administration produce. >> in terms of what you described there as bearing the political burden here, that is one of the strategic questions that i have. and this may be clearer to you from washington than
